Traditionally, wedding rings are carried down the aisle to the bride and groom by a cute little ring bearer on a pillow. That is still a wonderful way to handle the delivery of the wedding rings (or facsimiles of the rings if you prefer to safely hold onto them yourselves) but that's not the only way to do it.
If you'd like to get creative in this wedding planning area, WhereBridesGo.com has a few ring bearer pillow alternative ideas for you in today's blog. (Plus a look at some gorgeous ring pillows for those of you that would rather stick to tradition!)
A ring box, to many, seems much more secure of a container than a pillow with ribbons on top for safely getting your wedding rings from one place to another. Especially if you are entrusting a young ring bearer to hold onto this precious jewelry.
We carry a wonderful variety of different types of wedding ring boxes at WhereBridesGo.com. Best of all, most can be personalized with wedding details that are specific to you. As an added bonus, these lovely boxes make perfect places to store mementos or jewelry after the wedding day too.
Our online wedding store also carries many unique items that don't really fit into a specific category but can be utilized beautifully to go along with lots of different wedding styles. For example, our lovely Resin Tree Trunk Ring Holder fits in beautifully with a rustic wedding theme or to express a future of "happily ever after", the Fairy Tale Storybook Ring Holder would be perfect.
This is a great place in the wedding to inject a little humor. One idea is to put your ring bearer in some cool sunglasses and a fake earpiece, secret service-style, and have him deliver the rings very "top secret" like your very own personal wedding ring security guard. Our online wedding store also offers a fantastic Dog Ring Pillow so your favorite "guard dog" can play the part of ring bearer!
Traditional (& Not-So-Traditional) Ring Pillows
For those of you that would like for the ring bearer to carry a traditional wedding ring pillow, we've got an incredible variety of those at WhereBridesGo.com to fit many different wedding themes and styles. Just because you're sticking with tradition, that doesn't mean you have to give up personalizing the pillow in a style you love.
